The High Commissioner designate of Uganda to South Africa Paul Amoru presented a copy of his letter of credence to Ambassador M.H Hoyana, the acting chief of state protocol of South Africa at the Department of International Relations and Cooperation in Pretoria. 

The High Commissioner Designate was accompanied by two Uganda high commission officials, Minister Counsellor Robert Bitaroho and Counsellor Sarah Nakamya.

Amoru expressed gratitude to his host for the immediate opportunity granted to him to present copy of his Letter of Credence which allows him to commence his duties.

He arrived in South Africa for his tour of duty July 30.

Amrou underscored to his host the existing excellent and cordial bilateral relations between Uganda and South Africa which is anchored on a blood bond that dates far back before South Africa got her Independence.

He noted that Uganda provided a sanctuary for the South African freedom fighters of uMukonto Wesizwe, the military arm of ANC after the UN Security Council Resolution 435 that led to the withdrawal of ANC from Angola at the Oliver Reginald Tambo School of Leadership & Pan – African Centre of Excellence in Kaweweta- Luwero which later in 1998 became a home and training ground for the ANC freedom fighters.

He also emphasized that this gesture remains a key building block for the foundation of friendship between the two countries and added that his government and the people of Uganda take pride in the support shared by the two countries for the uMukhonto Wesizwe team during the struggle for freedom and democracy for South Africa.

The High Commissioner noted the need for the two countries to augment the outcomes of the recently concluded Joint Commission of Cooperation(JCC) meeting hosted by Uganda in Kampala.

The two exchanged views on topical matters on the continent such as Pan-Africanism, impact of Covid-19, socio-economic issues, politics, climate change and its impact, collaborative exchanges in various fields, among others.

He pledged his commitment to work with his hosts to deepen and expand the scope of cooperation in advancing the common goals of serving the people of both countries to the best of his abilities.

Amoru cordially requested Hoyana to render him kind assistance for the successful fulfillment of his tasks.
